What does NTA score means?

In the scorecard for JEE Main (January) 2022, the NTA score means “Normalized scores across multi session papers and are based on the relative performance of all those who appeared for the examination in one session. The marks obtained are converted into a scale ranging from 100 to 0 for each session.”

It also says “The NTA Score indicates the percentage of candidates who have scored EQUAL TO OR BELOW (same or lower raw scores) a particular candidate in that session.”

And the NTA scores of a candidate can be calculates by below formula: (100 X Number of candidates appeared in the ‘Session’ with raw score EQUAL TO OR LESS than the candidate) / (Total number of candidates appeared in the ‘Session’).

The NTA score is NOT the same as percentage of marks obtained and also the NTA score of the total is NOT an average or aggregate of the NTA score of individual subject.
